Starting and finishing times
School starts at 8.55am and finishes at 3.30pm. (Parents are welcome to leave children in the playground from 8.50am, once a member of school staff is on duty, but no earlier please, as there is no one to supervise them.)
Implementation of staggered start and finish times due to Covid-19
Since September 2020, we have changes the start and finish times of each class, to enable us to adhere to government guidance due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Catkin Class now start at 8.50am and finish at 3.15pm
Acorn Class now start at 8.45am and finish at 3.20pm
Chestnut Class now start at 8.40am and finish at 3.25pm
Lunchtime takes place between 12pm and 1pm each day. During the lunch break children have time to eat their lunch and go otuside to play. A variety of clubs also take place at lunchtime.
Hot school meals are provided by Chartwells Catering at a cost of £2.30 per day. Any children who are entitled to free school meals will receive a hot school dinner each day. Since September 2014 all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have been entitled to free hot school meals each day. Alternatively children may bring a packed lunch to school from home. Hot school meals for those who are entitled to a free school meal will be ordered by the school. Parents of children in Years 3 - 6 who are not entitled to free school meals will need to order meals a week in advance directly from Cygnet Catering www.mealselector.co.uk or by telephone on 01243 836130.

Morning play is between 10.40am and 11am. Children play on the school playground, field and Adventure Playground during morning and lunchtime play. Children need to bring their coats to school each day incase it is raining at playtime. If it is raining heavily the children are supervised while they play indoors.
